You may not understands Steve Welch’s off-the-wall jokes or pop culture references, so just humor him.

As Director of Creative Services since April 2019, Steve leads our team of graphic designers, presentation designers, motion designers, video producers and animators. His 25+ year career in design and media production has spanned traditional graphic design, digital media, video production, animation, creative direction and project management. He also founded and operated a digital design agency for 10 years before a successful exit.

Steve’s work has won design awards such as a Gold Wallie Award from the Carolinas Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society, and eHealthcare Leadership Awards. He was also named a Top 50 Entrepreneur by Business Leader Magazine and won a Piedmont Business Ethics Award by the Society of Financial Professionals.

Life Outside of Centrifuge:

Steve is a certified Kansas City Barbecue Society judge and loves spending time on his (wife’s) Traeger, smoking anything (on the Traeger).  He is a long-time drummer and enjoys most music made before 2001, excluding country. He is also an avid Halloween fanatic, so when you drive by that over-the-top, crazy Halloween house, it’s probably his. And, if the picture didn’t give it away yet, Steve belongs to the Star Wars fandom – although he’s still not happy about The Last Jedi.

Steve lives in Wake Forest, North Carolina with his beautiful and patient wife, Crystal, their daughter, three dogs and two cats.
